Forum: feature_films Subject: funny facts about copyright

I recently ubloaded some old U.S. Govermant videos on youtube
and was confronted with the most funniest copyright claims

Did you know that the United States National anthem (Star spangled banner) is copyrighted by Rumblefish, Inc ?

Well not the lyrics but the tune "The Anacreontic Song"
I wonder if they have to pay a fee everytime they play it :)

or the words of U.S President John F. Kennedy "Ich bin ein Berliner" (I am a Berliner) from a speech in West Berlin, Germany in 1963 are also copyrighted.

If you got similar (funny) claims .. please share

BTW .. it's always audio claims i got never visual content :/

The second one has me stumped. Wasn't the speechwriter paid by the government? Also, being so short, it's a wonder every catchphrase isn't copyrighted.

Youtube had GAMERA VS MONSTER X on their site so I bookmarked the page. I went to download it later but I got a message that said the item was removed and the uploader's account was terminated due to copyright violation. But what was weird was that it said the copyright claimant was TOHO! Isn't Gamera Daiei? And aren't there some Gamera movies here on IA? I know there was at one time but I haven't checked lately.

It is also possible that he has a few movies of Toho Co., Ltd. like Godzilla and such on his chennel

As far as i know you must do some really stupid stuff to get your chennel closed

Too bad. GAMERA VS MONSTER X is the only one of the OLD Gamera series that isn't here. I don't think Alpha has it either otherwise I would have bought it years ago. But yeah, he may well have put up some Godzilla stuff. I didn't search his channel, I was just searching Gamera. Also looked under the aka, GAMERA VS JIGER, but only found an incomplete clip.

the funny thing about President John F. Kennedy "Ich bin ein Berliner"is that he never said that...he mispronounced it and in german what he had said was funny...I dont recall wast it translated into..but how could they copyright what he meant to say,go figure...I'm waiting for the ku klux clan to claim copyright infringemtnt fot "birth of a nation"

I disputed their BS claim and they dropped it the next day.
The more you know.
